Dentistry for Kids include prevention with the goal of stopping tooth decay before it ever starts. Good dental health starts at an early age. The children start learning proper dental habits around age 2-3 years of age.
Pit and Fissure Sealants
All teeth have tiny pits which are not seen with our naked eyes. These tiny pits can provide a home for bacterias leading to tooth decay. A sealant is an invisible liquid applied to the tooth surface. It harmlessly fills these pits, removing them as homes for bacteria.
Kids have developing teeth, and need extra fluoride. For this reason fluoride application for young patients is recommended. This ensures that your child’s and teenager’s teeth grow strong and healthy. A gel is comfortably placed in a small tray that fits over the child’s teeth and is left on for about five minutes.
